From the Publisher:
Drawing on his academic and professional expertise, the author explains how the United States exported bad economics, bad policies, and bad behavior to the rest of the world, only to provide a substandard response when the markets finally seized up.
Pulitzer-Prize winning economist Paul Stiglitz, whose MAKING GLOBALIZATION WORK shed much light on the need to improve how governments and markets behave in the interconnected world economy, examines the causes of the financial crisis of 2008. Much of the blame goes to the United States, says Stiglitz--primarily for its bad policies and its failures to adequately regulate financial institutions. Stiglitz, who is critical of both the Bush and Obama administrations' response to the crisis, proposes deep reforms that are intended to bring order and rationality to the unbalanced global economy and to prepare us for the great challenges that lie ahead.


"A professor at Columbia University, Mr. Stiglitz uses his experience teaching to give the lay reader a lucid account of how overleveraged banks, a shoddy mortgage industry, predatory lending and unregulated trading contributed to the meltdown, and how, in his opinion, ill-conceived rescue efforts may have halted the freefall but have failed to grapple with more fundamental problems." - Michiko Kakutani 01/19/210
